I have updated Photoshop CC 2017, but NOT Bridge (I need web galleries)
However I have just noticed that the command, Tools > Photoshop > Batch is missing!
Ho do you do actions directly from Bridge???

I have solved this (Hopefully)

Un Installing and re installing PS 2018 didn't work on its own.

So...
I uninstalled PS 2018 CC
I Uninstalled Bridge 2017 CC
Re-installed Bridge 2017 CC
Re-installed PS 2018 CC

I also installed PS 2017 (as backup)

Anyone else with this problem - or is this an issue with Bridge 2018???

Hi Peter Moloney,

Please update Bridge to Adobe Bridge CC 2018 you will be able to see the command Tools -> Photoshop -> Batch .

Also on Bridge you can use Batch Rename functionality to perform batch operation use Cmd +Shift+R keyword in bridge.

Thanks,

I updated everything and it is still not there. I even reset my preferences. But it did not work. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks

Thanks for the info Avinash
However I can't update to Bridge CC 2018 because you can't make web galleries which I use almost every day!
Adobe please put back a simple html web gallery!
Peter

I have this problem bridge cc 2019. I have uninstalled bridge. Updated photoshop. Reinstalled bridge and still missing. It was just there yesterday. How can it just disappear without even updating? I have read several forums and no one has found the right answer for me. Did you find the answer? 
Thanks

These scripts are checked to be turned on when I went into the preferences but they still aren't showing up for me in tools

The other thing that is happening with bridge, is when I restart my computer, bridge wants to load automatically and I have that unchecked to load bridge at start up. Yet it does and it always gives me a message that Bridge needs to close because it was unable to load scripts. Why is it loading at start up. It never did before the 2019 upgrade. Yet all the scripts are checked and working. Except this one time. They were all unchecked. That never happened before but the "can't load scripts message" comes up every time I restart. Lots of glitches in adobe products right now. Very frustrating to have to pay for a 2019 product but have to downgrade to an older version to get around the bugs. I really do not want bridge to load at startup. How do I stop that? I went into startups in windows and everything. How is it starting on its own with errors?
